LABADIEVILLE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports that a verified complaint was filed against a 16-year-old male juvenile in connection with the theft of a vehicle from a residence on Cherry Street in Labadieville, LA.

During a preliminary investigation, detectives learned that the vehicle was reported as suspicious to Thibodaux Police Department in the early morning hours prior to the victim noticing it was stolen.

Detectives responded to the Thibodaux area and located the vehicle. The car was processed for physical evidence prior to being returned to the victim.

Detectives continued their investigation. Evidence recovered pointed towards a current 17-year-old male who was 16 at the time of the auto theft, as being a suspect.

In January of 2021, detectives received a scientific analysis report from Louisiana State Police Crime Lab concerning physical evidence collected. It was learned that the same male juvenile who was 16 at the time of the burglary but 17 at the time the analysis report was received, matched submitted evidence collected from the recovered vehicle. The juvenile, already in jail on unrelated charges, was booked on one count of Theft of a Motor Vehicle valued over $25,000 and one count of Simple Burglary on February 23, 2021 at the facility where he was housed.


The juvenile resides in Labadieville, LA and his incarceration continues.
